The league phase of IPL 2020 is reaching a conclusion and the opposition to snatch a spot in the playoffs is drawing nearer with each game. With CSK, RR and KXIP wiped out from the playoffs race, four groups are running for three empty spots. The qualification situation is as yet muddled despite just two games staying as at any rate two groups will complete at 14 points and Net Run Rate will assume a significant role.

For SRH the condition is very straightforward as though they dominate the last match, their capability is ensured. Then again, on the off chance that they lose against MI, the other three groups qualify with no problem. In any case, the only way RCB or DC can get dispensed with is if both of these conditions are fulfilled:

1. In the event that the loser of their match loses by a specific edge, which drops their Net Run Rate underneath KKR.

2. SRH dominates their last match against MI in the IPL 2020.

The NRR assumes an extremely large role in the qualification as though two groups end up on similar points. The group with the higher NRR is positioned higher. Be that as it may, have you ever pondered what might occur if the points and NRR of two groups are tied? It hasn’t occurred in IPL history yet it is conceivable this time.

What occurs if the Net Run Rate of the two groups is tied?

This situation can happen this time if the losing side in the DC versus RCB experience winds up at a similar NRR as of KKR. As the distinction between their NRR is very less, this circumstance can emerge this time. According to the guidelines characterized by IPL and BCCI, if there should arise an occurrence of a tie of the two points and NRR, the group which has picked the most number of wickets in the season will be positioned higher. It further says that if the quantity of wickets is likewise equivalent, the positions are dictated by drawing lots.

Here’s the rule  

16.10.2.3: If following the net run rate count above there are groups which are as yet equivalent, at that point, the group with the higher number of wickets taken per reasonable balls bowled in the matches played that season wherein results were accomplished will be set in the higher position;

16.10.2.4: If still equivalent toward the finish of the regular season then the group position will be dictated by drawing lots.

On the off chance that a similar circumstance emerges this time, KKR will be positioned lower than the loser of the RCB and DC game as the two of them have just picked a larger number of wickets than KKR. For this situation, the only way KKR can qualify is SRH losing their last game to the table-clinchers MI.
